  • carries university credits and is also graded, like the Nottingham Law School LPC, into Distinction, Commendation and Pass

  • is delivered in a way that suits busy schedules and minimises the time spent away from the office

  • recognises that you will be in private practice or working in-house during the course and seeks to enable you to apply your knowledge and skills to your own practice as soon as possible.
